-Public Lands." to lie placed ou tile market for snle. the proceedsof which 
were to be principally applied to the payment of the war debt of the Res- 
olution. 

To draw up a definite plan for the survey of these "Public Lands" in 
the Northwest Territory was a difficult problem, us th. methods of survey 
in the different stales differed somewhat. Virginia hud her irreaular plats 

known as "Tomahawk Survey, " (' ecticul had a more uniform plan 

which she had adept.- I in her survey ..f the "Western Reserve-' in I Ihio, 
part of the territory to which she laid claim. And now as these different 
states hnd ceded ail" this territory to the general -...eminent for the benefit 
of all. it became highly necessary that some general and definite tneth.id 
of survey be adopted. 

The plan arranged by .lames Mansfield, surveyor general of the North- 
west Territory, was adopted bv Congress in 1S"_'. It is so simple and 
pra.iicnl that it has received very lew modifications hv any of the land 
commissioners since. Aft. r the adoption of adefinite method of survey 
the government proceeiled to have tracts of this territory surveyed ,-tf as 
the demands of the public required; the first tract surveyed being nearly 
all in the state of < *h.... t lie sec, .ml in Indiana.
